Conceal Carry Basics

Come learn how to develop your conceal carry mindset and many other topics. This class will teach you how to start thinking defensively in all areas of your life. Being aware of your surroundings and what that means is an important concept. And you will start to understand how to think about the things you do everyday and how to avoid being a target at home and away. This is the acclaimed curriculum from the United States Conceal Carry Association, USCCA.

Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals is a comprehensive course for anyone considering owning or carrying a firearm for self-defense. The course is a complete guide to understanding conflict avoidance and situational awareness; home security and home defense; handgun, shotgun and AR-15 basics; handgun shooting fundamentals; the physiology of violent encounters; the legal aspects of using deadly force (including knowing what to do in the aftermath); and a complete guide on gear, gadgets, and ongoing training. This class is all classroom education with an emphasis on the proper defensive mindset.

There is an optional shooting portion to this class that can be taken at a later time. Our experience is that most people haven’t considered the topics this class covers, and they get overwhelmed by both this classroom portion and shooting on the range right afterwards. This class covers some heavy topics and most need some time to digest it. Having said that, this class is fantastic. Isn’t it better to consider all of these heavy topics before you start carrying a firearm for self-defense? It’s a terrible thing to consider that most don’t ever consider these topics and find themselves in legal hot water over an unjustified use of their firearm.

We offer lots of different types of classes in addition to this one. They can be found here:
